OMG I just created my new favorite snack. It tasted just like cookie dough (all it was missing was the chocolate chips!)

I took 1 package vanilla cream pudding supplement, about 4 T water, 1/2 tsp maple extract, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mix until dough consistency. It was fabulous!

I love that these recipes include the meal plan day option. I need that to help me process the menu I am on.

These recipies do not use HSNs

TALAPIA WITH GREEN BEANS

Ingredients
Pam cooking spray
1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano, plus more for garnish
1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
6-8-ounce tilapia fillets (thawed and dried with a paper towel before cooking)
5-6 ounces green beans (thin french style if availble)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp lemon juice

Directions

Place a large skillet (nonstick) over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fish with the oregano and parsley. Spray the bottom of the pan with pam then add the fish and cook 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook through, 1 to 2 more minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Add the green beans and garlic powder to the skillet and cook about 2 minutes. Season pepper if desired. Stir in the lemon juice and 1/4 cup water, then cover and cook until the beans are tender, about 3 more minutes. Remove from heat and add tomoatoes to the pan and cover for about 1 minute just to warm the tomatoes slightly.

Measure out your portion of fish and beans/tomatoes and enjoy.



CROCK POT PORK ROAST
1 pork loin roast
20 oz Diet Rite (or other diet pop that is on plan)
6 oz veggies of your choice (we like cauliflower, mushrooms, green onions)
garlic powder and onion powder to taste
Chives (optional)

Put roast in crockpot, sprinkle with garlic powder and onion powder and add pop. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (it will not hurt it if it cooks longer than this). Remove roast from crockpot and either slice it like a roast or shred it for "pulled pork". Serve with veggies. (could serve this in a tortilla with salad veggies, with bread or melba and the cooked veggies, could be used on a salad, etc. )


CUCUMBER SALAD

Ingredients
1 large cucumbers, cubed
1 serving cottage cheese
2 sprigs fresh mint, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper (optional)

Directions
Place cucumbers in a large salad bowl, and set aside.
In a small food proccessor or using a mixer combine cottage cheese, mint, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and pepper until well blended and smooth. Pour over the cucumbers, and mix until well coated.


You can find all kinds of recipies on the internet. I usually search for the protein I want to use an then adjust the recipie to fit the plan.

Default Random Recipes

I had another class the other day and just wanted to share some of the recipes.

Mock Corn Beef and Cabbage
Using a round steak or Buffalo meat, place in a large pot and add water to cover, add 20-50 black peppercorns, 1 T cider vinegar, mustard seeds 1-3 tsp. garlic powder, and 2 bay leaves. Bring the pot to a boil, reduce heat to a slow simmer and cook, covered, until a fork can easily penetrate the centere of the meat. A 3- to 4- pound round steak will take 2 1/2 to 3 hours, but always check steak for right texture. Add wedges of fresh green cabbage to the pot during the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking. When the meat is tender, remove it to a cutting board and let stand for about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the cabbage and keep warm. Cut the mock corned beef, against the grain, into thin slices and remove to serving plate or platter. Serve with the warm cabbage. **This is a low sodium recipe**

Mock Spaghetti
1 pkg. Cream of tomato supplement dissolved in 1/2c water
4 oz ground turkey breast
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 oz green onion, chopped
1/2 spaghetti squash
Bake squash upside down in 1/4 c water in oven for 45 minutes or microwave at 5 minutes per lb. Brown turkey, add onion, and stir in supplement. Add seasoning and cook for 10 minutes. Strip out squash, weigh 4 oz. and serve sauce over it.

A couple of ideas -

GRILLED SIRLOIN WITH MUSHROOMS AND ASPARAGUS (using grill pan stove)
Preheat grill. Spray lightly with Pam for grilling and place sirloin on grill (can season with whatever spices you like) cook to your taste (165 degrees internal temperure is medium). Remove from grill.

Spray grill lightly with Pam for grilling and add baby portabella mushrooms that have been cut in half and asparagus spears that have had the bottom 1/3 cut of. Grill for about 2 minutes and then turn over. Slowly pour about 1/4 cup of water around the grill pan. This should steam and bubble a lot. Cook 2-3 min more or until mushrooms and asparagus are tender.

I like to serve this with 1/4 c quinoa in the center of the plate, measure out my steak and place it on top of that with the mushrooms and asparagus on top of the steak and sprinked with chives.


GROUND TURKEY TACO SALAD

Cook ground turkey and season with taco seasoning. Measure out your portion and put it back in the skillet. Add 1/4 cup salt-free rinsed black beans and cook 2-3 min until the beans are warm. Turn off the heat and add in 1 small diced tomato and stir. Prepare salad with your favoriate veggies - mine included spinach, romane, leaf lettuce, cucumber, green onion, green peper and grape tomatoes.

Place salad in the center of a pretty plate, top with meat/beans and enjoy.

Good luck, ladies!

MRC Chocolate Brownies

1 hot cocoa (or double chocolate pudding)
3 T water
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 scoop of Super Chocolate (MRC product)
1 packet sweetner (optional - I did not use this and it was still very sweet)

Stir ingredients together and put in a bowl Microwave 30-45 seconds - don't over cook. (30 seconds was perfect for me and it is very yummy warm - if you like gooey brownies you could cook it for 20 seconds).

These are very awesome!
